met a high school graduate who is making $15.00 /hr. She told me that whenever her boss tells her to come into work she goes. Spends a lot of time learning where things are so that she can guide the customer to the correct aisle. Going to college at night. Well on her way to a management job at Lowe's. While I was there a Lowe's employee who was misdirecting people to the wrong aisle while exhibiting whining all over the place. Complaining about steady hrs., retirement , night shift pay, vacation pay, sick pay, personal time off,holiday pay, smoke cessation classes. gastro operation to reduce food input on company time and to be be re-enrolled in the company's ADD ( attention deficit disorder) class as he failed the first three times. He didn't pay attention.
I agree completely. I worked for IBM for 36 yrs and with not a dull day. Every day was not only a challenge and interesting but also a day of fulfillment. Knowing when you started out on Monday morning, IBM
'"had your back". Family was first for IBM. "Respect for the individual" was a TJ Watson signifier. Customer service was of the utmost even though their competition was insignificant early on. They bent over backwards to keep the employee and the CUSTOMER happy.
dsc. I want to help you in your endeavor. Unfortunately you listed qualifications that don't match an entry level position for a government job these days. Start with " no felonies ". That's a game changer. You need to steal a lawn mower on your way out. That's a felony. Now you're on the right track. Next step is a big one. You need to have a conversion....a Bruce Jenner conversion. Then go to a heavy duty tanning salon for 20 sessions. When you complete this program you will go to the top of the list for prospective candidates. On your resume. # 1 Any felonies ? YES. # 2 are you black ? YES. # 3 transgender ? Yes (which way ? ) Make sure you say male to female. Female to male is a disqualification and Obamma Care does not cover that procedure.
on Weds., 8/13, 07:30 AM sharp. DSC will be graded on the condition of aisles 13 and 14. No sticky floors allowed and naturally if the inspector slides there, then DSC would have to rescind a 1 % pay increase. Also the female high school student management trainee who is conducting this "review" will inspect the attire that DSC wears. Please, dsc, put aside the European bathing suit for one day. Do us proud.
disc...... "Why doesnt lowes ,give pensions , steady hrs, raises, vacations, time off , heath care ( you missed that one I believe), " My question is..... Why does disc WHINE ?
dsc. Why don't you show some appreciation for the opportunities that Lowe's has given you ? Your name wasn't picked out of a hat. Management had this planned for months. This is "showcase time " for you !! JULY 4 TH !!!!!! Take advantage of this . Greet the customer with a smile for a change and don't whine while misdirecting him to the wrong aisle. Don't complain to him that you will be missing the fireworks. Tell him (with a sincere smile) that you are recording the fireworks.
he could easily. With 47% of the populace on food stamps and or SSI assistance, this AUTOMATICALLY guarantees him the plurality. Wasn't that the plan in the first place ?
he might be going to Cleveland instead. He also thinks the fishing is better there. He's checking the bus schedule.
